Iceland: Real Iceland Activity Holidays
Awesome activities in spectacular Iceland
Iceland is an alluring country that is teeming with tremendously diverse scenery which our Iceland activity holidays let you witness in a completely unique way. This seven-day break is ideal for couples, groups and families with children over the age of 14. Scandinavia’s Midnight Sun phenomenon makes Iceland activity holidays even more incredible as its inviting glow allows you to take part in outdoor pursuits late into the evening. Tread in the shadows of the Vikings as you hike among immense glaciers, get your adrenalin pumping as you raft down rushing rapids and race over rocky lava fields on a quad bike. If all of this isn’t enough, then lap up the fresh sea breeze as you sail out onto cool waters to see fabulous marine animals like whales, porpoises and dolphins.
On Iceland activity holidays you will be based in the culturally chic capital of Reykjavík. Whether you want to take in the enchanting sights of the city, sample the regional cuisine or simply unwind in a hip café, there is something for everyone in this fashionable capital. Experience wonderful nature, fascinating geology and vibrant culture on our Iceland activity holidays.
When you book an activity adventure holiday in Reykjavík there are several types of accommodation to suit your individual budget; choose from a guesthouse or 3 and 5 star hotels.
